Publisher's Summary

A sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Kelly Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk-show host.

In Live Wire, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter, and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.

Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless, and always with humor...Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.

Live Wire

I listened for a short time and I knew I did not want to continue now I feel I waisted a credit, no refund necessary. She did not seem genuine way too many cus words I thought were not necessary! My opinion of her, she is narcissistic!

I want my Time Back.

What a Bust! Totally, Not worth a credit! I have listened to over 270 books on audible and this is the worst one yet.

Missed the mark

I am so disappointed by this read. Nothing new was shared and what was shared and how it was written was so drawn out and poorly done. I have to say I’ve been a long standing fan of Kelly Ripa but not this book. Don’t waste your money.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

The stories themselves, so entertaining. However being told by Kelly, herself, takes them to a whole new level. I laughed, I choked back tears, all off the emotions were elicited. I can’t begin to express how much I enjoyed this book!!

Thoroughly enjoyed!

Kelly is a real woman dealing with real woman issues. It was delightful to listen to her. I find her to be even more relatable than before. Thanks for sharing your “Essays”!

Fantastic book!!!

I laughed so hard I had tears. I was touched to tears with some of the emotional parts about her children. I called my daughter as soon as I finished and exclaimed that she had to get this book! It was so enjoyable I am sorry it is over.

A must for your library!

I loved this book! I laughed out loud so many times and also cried as Kelly told stories in such a descriptive and real way. I relived my newborn going off to college all over again!

The stories were so easy to relate to and I will be listening all over again! I never write reviews. Ever. But this book was too good not to.

Such a fun and heartfelt read!

I laughed so much!!! Like there’s only one person that can make me laugh like that, well now 2.
I cried, reading about college as I’m going through the same phase in my life. You have 3 healthy children and a husband who loves you!! HAHAHA Kelly, I thought I was the only one that was reminded of that over and over!
Love you and thank you! I needed this book at this time in my life.

Loved every minute of your book Kelly!

I loved your stories from the first to the last! I especially loved that you narrated the book. I was a fan of yours from All My Children then Hope and Faith then onto Live!! I’ve watched Live since your first day until today! I admire you even more since listening to your stories! Thanks Kelly loved your book!
